It’s hard to choose our favourite bit of this wonderful handmade gaddi cushion. Versatile to the core; use it on the floor, on a wooden chair, as a back support, as a standard cushion ... the list goes on. Each one is unique as they are made from recycled *ikat rayon saris to create a gorgeously vivid and glossy textile, and the multi-coloured bobble trim is just pure eye candy. All employees are provided with Provident Funding, employee insurance and access to a medical facility. The company is determined to maintain and sustain traditional techniques in the modern world. They recycle old saris and beautiful embroidered fabric panels into new products and hand weave items giving the traditional a very modern twist. In the local community this company supports education for children in poverty, and distributes blankets and domestic home wares to poor families. They also run a blood donor programme. Not only that, they have two wind power plants and they are proud of being able to underpin their business with good relationships with people, and trust in the beautiful products they produce, just like this attractive gaddi. Soften a wooden pew or bench or use to personalise kitchen chairs. Each one is different, allowing you to create a fantastically eclectic array of pops of fun colour making for a vibrant and cheerful home.
*ikat or ikkat, is a dyeing technique used to pattern textiles that employs a dye-resist technique of wrapping and wax on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric, creating a distinct pattern.
